How Some Government Mandates are Paid For

Uploaded by :

This paper provides a summary of one article by Joyce McKnight entitled "Public Funding of Human Services from the "Poor Laws" until Today." It is enlightening to learn that many of today's programs are similar to those begun centuries and decades ago but with different titles and in some cases, different mandates. Examples are included to demonstrate how programs in the 1700s and 1800s provided the foundation for human service and social welfare programs today. There is one source listed in the bibliography of this three page paper.
